It seems pretty odd that small hoses called, for instance, "fast idle control hose" have coolant in it. But, it is probably only odd because I have no idea about how things like "fast idle control" work on this car.

FITV = fast-idle thermo valve
That thing, bolted to the bottom of the throttlebody, allows extra air into the manifold to increase the idle RPM when the engine's cold. As the coolant warms up the FITV closes off, dropping the idle to normal.
